Story status: Discontinued Commands: Closed, obviously INTRODUCTION Hello, fellow readers. Or should I say, fellow Players. You are about to embark in a journey of hilarious antics and chaos. Maybe. This concept is heavily inspired by the MS Paint Adventures by Andrew Hussie, and most specifically, Jailbreak and Problem Sleuth. While the plot itself is different, it works in the same way: Players enter commands for the characters to follow in order to progress and complete a series of puzzles. The goal of this story is to find a way to get back your internet connection, as it has been lost for a while. Of course it won't be as simple as it seems. This is a game after all, and ending the story so soon would be too easy and boring. New panels will be drawn and posted from time to time. Some may be animated (do not expect professional animation), although such panels will take more time to produce. Some may also contain strong language. HOW TO PLAY Your role as a player is to enter commands to progress. You may enter what you wish, as creative, simple, complex or crazy as it may be. Use your imagination! I will not choose all commands and instead I will use one or two, since I have to draw a lot for new panels and I am not a wizard. There is also a few other reasons for this, such as: I do not want to lose control of what is going on and I do not want to be overwhelmed. Remember that there is someone who does most of the work. Commands must always begin with ">". Example: >Go outside. When new characters are introduced, they are often not given a name. They may only be named once the command ">Enter name." is entered by me and nobody else. In this case, instead of posting a command, you post a name. Names will be considered as suggestions and may be combined with others or be slightly modified. When a character needs to be named, the command status at the top of this post will be changed to "Character Naming". RULES -All Forum rules apply here, of course. -PLEASE ALWAYS CHECK THE COMMANDS STATUS AT THE TOP OF THIS POST BEFORE ENTERING A COMMAND / SUGGESTING A CHARACTER NAME. -You may post only one command after a new panel. -Do not enter a command that was already entered by someone else. -Do not enter a command if the Commands status is set to "Closed" or "Character Naming". -Do not enter inappropriate commands or names. ------- FAQ Q: What program do you use? A: FireAlpaca, Paint.NET and ASEPRITE. FireAlpaca to draw panels, Paint.NET to resize stuff (FireAlpaca makes it blurry), and ASEPRITE for animated panels (although there are much better programs for this since this one was intended for sprites). Q: Are you going to make Flash animations/games? A: No. That would be overambitious. Q: When do you usually close command entries? A: It's usually when it gets late for me, or if I need to do some planning. When it's the latter, commands are usually closed for more than a day. Log Page 1: Downternet Page 2: Enter name.
